The way of savings depends on the effective use of available resources
TAMEK, which provides 66.9 % energy savings within two years, has achieved more efficiency with less energy by handling energy resources as well as reducing energy costs through energy efficiency studies and productivity increasing projects realized with TUBITAK (Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council). First of all, TAMEK constructed training and project plans with its employees in four factories located in Bursa, Balıkesir, Manisa and Cyprus where production was made, starting from the Holding building in Istanbul, Ulus. In order to increase the energy efficiency in the process, it carried out the projects so as to obtain successful business results related to heat insulation in production facilities, use of low-pressure air in compressed air systems, the correct use of lighting in production areas, minimization of the energy use of production lines and auxiliary operating equipment with added automation systems, correct production planning and upgrading of production line efficiencies; accordingly, 66.9 % of energy saving was realized.
